Dear Ilja,

I forgot to mention yesterday that, in addition to the affixes I
reconstruct in my 2016 IJAL paper, there is an innovative construction/set
of constructions with three right-margin suffixes in Piaroa and in the Mako
habitual. There will be an article on this in the upcoming issue of
the *Journal
of Historical Linguistics:*

   - *Rosés Labrada, J.E. *(2018). The Piaroa Subject Marking System and
   its Diachrony. Journal of Historical Linguistics, Special issue on “*The
   evolution of argument coding patterns in South American languages’,* ed.
   by Spike Gildea and Antoine Guillaume, 8(1): 31-58.

In fact, the whole issue might be relevant:

Please do let me know if you'd like a copy of the article and I can send
you the proofs.
